A Lubbock High School team will participate in a national competition.

U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz announced Monday that a team of Lubbock High students was among 24 teams of middle and high school students who won their regional competitions for the 2014 National Science Bowl this past weekend.

The National Science Bowl allows students to compete in a fast-paced question-and-answer format, where they solve technical problems and answer questions on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, earth and space science, physics, and math.

The LHS team will compete in the Bowl in Washington D.C. from April 24th through the 28th.

The top 16 high school teams and the top eight middle school teams in the National Finals have won $1,000 for their schools’ science departments. Prizes for the top two high school teams in the Bowl will be announced later.

The high school team that won the 2013 National Science Bowl received a nine-day science trip to Alaska, and the second-place high school team won a five-day fully guided tour of several national parks.

More than 225,000 students have participated in the National Science Bowl since it was established in 1991.
